St. Patrick’s Day Brookies

Here’s a perfect brownie/cookie recipe that will surely warm every Irish heart this St. Patrick’s Day. Preparation takes about 10 – 15 minutes, making this a quick, delicious treat for all the little leprechauns in your family. Share with a neighbor, at work, or at your next St. Patrick’s Day party!


  • 1 box of fudge brownie mix *Be sure to purchase a brownie mix that calls for water, vegetable oil and eggs
  • 1 pouch of sugar cookie mix *Purchase a sugar cookie mix that already calls for butter and egg
  • 1 1/4 cups of green milk chocolate M&M candies
  • 12 Oreo chocolate/mint sandwich cookies, cut each cookie into fourths


  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-inch square pan with foil, making sure that the foil hangs over the sides of pan. This will allow for easy removal after baking. Spray with cooking spray.
  2. Make your brownie batter as directed on the box. Spread mixture into the pan. Bake 32 to 35 minutes or until brownies are set around sides and a toothpick inserted into the center of brownies comes out almost clean. Cool brownies in the pan for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, make the cookie dough as directed on the pouch for drop cookies. Stir in 1 cup of the M&M candies. Drop half of the cookie dough mixture in chunks on top of baked brownie layer; then add half of the Oreo pieces. Repeat with remaining cookie dough and Oreo pieces. With the back of a spoon gently press the cookie dough together to form an even layer. Top with remaining 1/4 cup of M&M candies, again pressing gently into the cookie dough.
  4. Bake for 23 to 28 minutes or until the cookie layer is set, if necessary cover the pan with foil the last 10 minutes to prevent over-browning. Cool for 2 1/2 hours; remove the bars from the pan, and cut into your desired serving size. This recipe makes at least 16 bars.

Note: For the best tasting Brookies, I make this recipe using a Betty Crocker Brownie Mix, and a Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Pouch. The generic brands don’t work as well or taste as delicious!
